Fi-Fi's Good Turn

2006-07-13 21:53

  “Goodnight, Fi-fi!” yawned Captain Cuttle, as he turned out the light.

  “Yawk!” screeched Fi-fi, the parrot, who was too busy biting the catch on her cage to answer properly. All at once the cage door flew open and she was free.

  Fi-fi knew the hall window was never shut, and out she hopped. Chattering happily to herself, she flew round and round in the garden and then into the woods.

  Just then a large brown owl swooped down and hooted, “Too-whit! Who are you?”

  “I am Fi-fi, the parrot!” she piped.

  Crowds of birds came fluttering down and a thrush asked, “Can you sing, Parrot?”

  “Not very well,” said Fi-fi sadly.

  “Do you know how to find worms for your supper?” chirped a starling.

  “Worms? Ugh! Nasty things! I only eat seed and apples,” snorted Fi-fi.

  “Can you make a nest out of grass and mud?” piped a sparrow.

  “I don't need to,” snapped Fi-fi. “I live in a cage that shines like gold.”

  All the birds twittered with laughter.

  “I can do something none of you can do,” boasted Fi-fi.

  “What is that?” asked Brown Owl.

  “I can talk like the humans and they understand me,” said Fi-fi, tossing her head.

  Suddenly they heard men's voices and one growled roughly, “We will put up the snares here. Plenty of rabbits about.”

  Then Fi-fi had an idea. She gave a loud screech like a railway engine and cried “Rascals! Thieves! Boys, fetch the police!”

  And with frightened shouts the men ran away and never troubled the woodland folk again.

  “Hurrah! Clever Fi-fi!” chirped all the birds, as they gathered round the parrot. “You have saved us! Please stay with us and we will build you a nest.”
